I was the owner of an apparel liquidation site being negatively reviewed by Emily Lee of San Jose, CA and Randy Hui of Vancouver, BC. These are established extortionists that sell counterfeit goods.
Designer Liquidations has always enjoyed 100% positive reviews since 2006 (eBay account example below), until these counterfeiters and extortionists showed up and began their scam against us.
Our business has been operating successfully for the last eight (8) years and was in the process of being sold until recently. Since late 2012, Emily Lee and Randy Hui began extorting us for goods and money, after being exposed as counterfeit sellers of goods that were rejected by our site.
They have been campaigning especially dubiously ever since under threat of negative online reviews. This is a typical online scam and when businesses don't comply, they do just as Emily lee and Randy Hui are doing. This is especially bewildering because Randy Hui works at a nearby military base in Vancouver. Being complicit with Emily Lee in this scam would be something not to be careless about.
As for payment to us, as anyone in the off-price business knows, goods (especially brokered goods) must be paid for in advance. When lots become available, there is no 'credit' and this is industry standard. Emily and her gang jumped on the available handbag lot because we have enjoyed a hard-earned reputation as legitimate sellers of authentic goods since we started the business in 2006.
The modus operandi of what counterfeiters like Emily + gang do, is purchase legitimate goods, mix them in with their counterfeit goods, and subsequently sell them as 'authentic' to their buyers.
After private investigation related to our pending lawsuit against Emily Lee, we saw that she is a Chinese national who has been arrested for identity theft, and uses Randy Hui's Canadian bank account to buy any legitimate goods they can find, prior to being mixed and sold as 'authentic' to their buyers. Randy Hui is the financier.
We are filing a $250,000 defamation suit in California against Emily Lee and she is simply acting vindictively after we refused to add additional product for her order after it arrived one (1) week late due to an Italian supplier shipping late, and experiencing a fairly normal hold in Canadian customs. Nothing really out of line in this business, however goods were shipped and received by Emily Lee and Randy Hui.
Between asking for additional goods in an inappropriate amount to pad their counterfeit lots, that no legitimate business would agree to, these unfortunate people are simply extorting a business that simply told her 'no' when asked to participate in their criminal enterprise.
We were blind-sided that after we experienced such difficulty with her order, she would ask us to sell her 'goods'. To temper her difficulty, we asked for a sample and a week later received a Coach bag that was an obvious fake. If this could not get any more absurd, after we rejected it, she actually asked for it back!
We destroyed the bag since returning it would implicate us in sending counterfeit goods, and we believe it was simply a trap after we told her that after we delivered goods for original order, and refused additional business considerations with her...we were done. The nightmare of this sociopathic behavior thus began and results in online postings defending a reputation rightfully gained after a period of years.
On our side, in one instance, we spent over seven (7) months working with ICE and Armani through their Italian offices getting samples from a small container of goods we wanted to purchase authenticated, and we have the their report on file. We actually worked with ICE agents in Mississippi and Arizona on this to ensure no grey market or counterfeit existed in the lot that was sitting in a warehouse for nearly a year. This is the extent to which we go through to ensure we handled authentic goods.
It is our very informed opinion that Emily Lee and Randy Hui are simple fraudsters using multiple online identities, and even Yelp has banned them by removing all reviews on the site, which is normally nearly impossible to do. We met with Yelp at their Scottsdale offices and the take-away was that even they understood the extent of the criminal activity by this gang after pulling up four (4) different user accounts using false names and California driver's license pictures of Caucasian persons, when we know for a fact that Emily Lee and Randy Hui are of Chinese nationality. The image of the poor girl we saw on the driver's license photo posted on Yelp under a fake user account, is very likely a victim of their identity theft activities as well.
Since they hijacked our business names on Yelp, thus locking us out for several days, before Yelp management assisted us, we defended ourselves just as any victimized company would do. Who wouldn't.
We have notified our contacts at ICE about this entire matter as well.
